from nbc news, this is "today," with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb. from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> hey, everybody. it's finally friday, september 28. hard to believe it's the last show of the month. >> what? are you kidding? >> we have to start out big in october, baby. >> october 1, we are going to -- >> lot of spirit -- >> to the university of tennessee. we've decked out our table for the last few days. >> yeah. >> a great orange, like tangerine. awesome.
>> we expect the entire campus to show up. come out to see us. we'll have a musical guest who we'll surprise with. >> that hopefully we can book. big surprise. we don't know. >> going to be fun. we want you to join us. >> starts at 8:00 a.m. get there -- first come, first serve. our live show begins at 10:00 a.m. >> this is important. we'll host a creative sign contest. we want you guys to do your best artwork, show up on the plaza out there with a sign. we'll pick you and you'll get another surprise that we don't know -- >> >> we don't know what it is either. it's going to be great. >> don't -- >> yeah. don't study this weekend. spend all your time wasting your time. there is news in the tipping department. >> okay. here's the thing -- >> i used to think it was 15% unless you're out to dinner at a nice place and it's 20%. >> it's 20% -- 20 across the board. that's what i think. now some people do that weird thing where they double the tax. i don't understand that situation. so 20% is what it's supposed to
be. now a "the new york post" study says the new normal is 25% to 30%. that's 1/3 of your meal. >> cornell university looked at another study. not -- over 9,000 restaurant receipts and found more than 1/3 of customers left a tip over 20%. that's nice to hear. >> yes. that is. >> in today's world and the economy and everything. what we've stopped realizing is that, you know, most people that work in the food services, the waiters, that's really what they live on. they get -- >> terrible salary. yeah. >> frank's always been a huge, huge, huge tipper. i think something should also be earned, though. >> yes. >> when somebody's awesome, give them that huge tip. >> i agree. i usually do a 20% usually regardless, i think. if someone's really good -- >> have you ever not left one? >> not intentionally. do you know what i do? this is how weird i am. if someone leaves a crummy tip and i'm with them, i will say i have to go back inside, and i
will leave more -- >> extra. >> it makes me feel sick -- >> you're guilty by association. >> i don't want to be a cheap skate. >> i don't want to be surrounded -- i don't know. sometimes you feel terrible about it. >> cass and i were in nantucket last summer. it -- it bugs me to this day. we went to try a new restaurant. and for whatever reason, i couldn't see or not, i left a tip on dinner and realized afterwards that i hadn't left enough at all. i was gone from nantucket. i can't remember the name of the restaurant much less -- >> it bugs you -- >> it bugs me that she might think i didn't leave enough money. i'm very sorry. it was one of those days i was having a brain -- [ noise ] >> yeah. here's something they say, i disagree, but here's what some say -- modern men expect women to go on dutch dates. they expect women to go -- >> dutch on dates. >> what did i say? >> or go to amsterdam with them. i don't know.
[ laughter ] >> which could be fun. amsterdam's a wild and crazy place. >> go dutch on dates, split the bill. okay? >> when i was dating in the 1800s, never, never would have occurred to a woman to pay for anything. ever. i miss the good old days. >> can i say i don't think it's right for a woman to pay on a date? >> that would make you old-fashioned and sexist. >> i don't care. if a guy asks you out or you ask the guy, it changes the whole >> you lose respect for the guy, don't you? >> if the person can't afford the date, that's okay. i'd rather have an ice cream cone on the boardwalk or a glass of wine on the beach than sit there and do the who's paying what -- >> i know. >> i don't like it. i'd rather have -- i'd rather have a cook-in dinner than that. >> we wanted equality, hoda. we got it. >> no. it's the worst feeling in the world. every date after that date, that's when the game starts. oh, do you want to, should i -- exactly.
>> but if the guy starts off saying, i pay for everything, he pays for everything. >> yes, right. >> should the woman say, listen, you've been paying for everything, let me treat you now. >> i think that's okay. >> even if the guy would let you, you know it would bother you? >> yes. i would hope he would say no. if he said sure -- >> i have never seen frank let a woman pay for anything ever. i miss the gentlemanly -- you know -- >> a lot of the guys in the survey say they like it when it's splitsville like that, when they split the bill. the economy is terrible -- >> jimmy -- no? no. joe? >> never. >> never have? >> jimmy? >> once. >> one of our cameramen is asleep. anyway -- >> jimmy goes, what? >> huh? >> you are a real charmer. yeah, you are. here's a weird story out of india, okay. the question is -- should housewives earn a salary? and you know, we did something that talked about how much -- >> making $100,000, wasn't it?
>> yeah. they're talking about passing a law, the government is talking about drafting a law in india that would require husbands to pay the salary of the wife. he might think it through before he asks you to marry him. right? look at hoda. >> you're right. okay. here's the thing -- and i think this is the case. a woman doesn't want to ask -- if her husband's making the money, a woman doesn't want to say, honey, can i have money so i can go to the grocery store? can i have money -- it's gross, a terrible feeling. you don't want to do that. you have earned it because you're doing a lot. >> these are the things nobody wants to talk about when they're in love. nobody wants to talk about the things that actually will keep you in love if you actually take the time to talk them over and discuss it and know what's expected of you and how it's going to work before you get married. >> i know. you're so ga-ga you don't care about those things. and then it hits you. and it ruins your life. >> i'm going off today for a wedding. i'm excited.
my niece is marrying a lovely guy named mark. i'm praying that -- they've had all these conversations and that they're going to have a wonderful life together. you know, it's -- marriage is not easy. >> but i love the beginning. i do love -- >> you like flirting. you don't like so much living. >> i like setting the table. you know, that's it. okay. anyway, if you believe in fate, you're going to love this story that we have coming up. there's a little girl named brittany shriver. she was on the plaza many, many years ago. she was, i think, 9 years old. and if you believe in destiny, you'll like this. when she was 9, her parents were with her on the plaza. >> let's show the -- >> they were visiting from ohio. >> we'll show the video and tell you what happened to brittany. >> somebody here said something that should be music now to see your ears. >> cleveland? >> over there. >> cleveland? over here? over here? and this young girl, this young lady's from cleveland. what's your name? >> brittany. >> brittany? all right. where do you go to school?
